Like most beekeepers in the South I have my share of SHB. But, this year seems diffrent. I run 8 frame equipment, bees are strong but I have noticed SHB Larva on several of the hives in frame 1&8. The bees seemed uninterested in them. The yard has 84 hives in it and this is the first time I have used the location. A couple of yards that have had the same bees in them for a few years are showing the same signs. Kinda ruled out the ground being infested with SHB. It seems to be warmer this year and the humidity has been really bad. Has anyone else in the Southeast noticed and increase in SHB activity? as of today I have loss 5 hives that upon last insepction where strong. Lasted checked 15 days prior. They have been robbed, and someone told me sometimes duirng the robbing process the SHB take the opertunity during the confussing to lay large amounts of eggs. The beetle barns are empty....... Anyone?????
